Dotypos Cloud lets you import or export suppliers. If you have already created supplier records, you can export them to the file and use it for backups or adjustments. If you import this file back via Dotypos Cloud, the records will be automatically updated or newly created. You may import just one .csv file. Before importing the .xls file, you have to save it in .csv format first.


To find out how to import / export see the parent chapter.

Each supplier has its own ID number. If you adjust a supplier in the .csv file, the supplier with the same ID number will be adjusted in Dotypos Cloud after it is imported and in the touch cash register after synchronization.

You will find the import and export buttons in the page heading at Item management » Suppliers.

If you have not created any suppliers yet and you want to batch import them, download the .csv template from Dotypos Cloud and replace the sample data with yours. Then import the file. The sample procedure is described in this chapter.
